Track? What Track?

Oh That’s Right.  The track that I need to get back on.  You’d think these posts would be more annoying for me to write than for you to read.  But apparently not.

I am not sure what it is about food that I have all of the good intentions in the world and then when faced in a situation I make the worst choices.  Well not the worst.  I could have eaten everything, but instead I just fooled myself into thinking that I was on track.

I’m no longer weighing myself everyday.  It just makes me incredibly sad.

I am no longer going out to eat as much because all the places that have good healthy food are really far away and I can only kid myself so long that I am making healthy choices closer to home.  It’s too expensive on top of that.

I miss the fire and passion I used to have with Weight Watchers.  I also miss the not having pain in my upper back.  I miss that a lot.

Workout Plan:

  • Monday: 3.5 Miles
  • Tuesday: Rest
  • Wednesday: 4.0 Miles
  • Thursday: Cross training – Elliptical Most Likely
  • Friday: 4.0 Miles
  • Saturday: Rest
  • Sunday: MCM 10k Road Race

Monday Menu:

  • Breakfast: Wegmans Light English Muffin, 1 TBSP Elderberry Jelly, Coffee with Half and Half – 4 P+
  • Snack: Apple 0P+
  • Lunch: Flat out Wrap (light) w/1 TBSP of hummus, 4 slices of turkey, Dannon Yogurt, Baby Carrots and Tzatziki Sauce – 9P+
  • Snack: Banana 0P+
  • Dinner: Chicken Breast with Roasted Asapargus and other Veggies 6P+
  • Activity: Running 3.5 Miles

I am told that I can now think of the current place we are in as Late October.  I find out if I got an interview in Late October from GMU.  I will now be having a panic attack daily when approaching the mail box.  This should make my neighbors love me even more.  Or what will be even better is if I start crying/screaming/seizing after seeing a letter from Mason.

Why oh why do they string me along so?

The halloween get together is this week and for food I have:

  • Turkey Meatballs
  • Pulled Chicken
  • Green Bean Casserole
  • Sweet Potato Casserole
  • Roasted Asparagus & Potatoes
  • Chewy Pumpkin Bars
  • Coworker is bringing Brownies

I’ll also have chips, guac, salsa and a cheese plate out for appetizers.  Please oh please let the dogs behave.  Who knows what will actually happen.  I don’t particularly care.  It’s a mix of work and personal friends, and I am thankful that my outside of work friends could come because I am a bit overwhelmed with people coming from work.  My house isn’t a McMansion or completely renovated like theirs are (I’m not rich and the money I have I would rather spend traveling.).

I am far too worried about what others think, I think.

My intention for this week is to get my workouts in – I am less stressed when these have occurred; Get more sleep.  Who cares if I can’t watch TV?  That’s what Saturdays are for! Be more optimistic about my running.  At least I can run!  At least I have my legs!

I think that is a good start so far.  Let’s see if I can keep it going!


Carry On!
